Security researchers said the world was ending with the Heartbleed bug. Didn't’t happen. Security researchers have said the apocalypse was nigh with any number of exploits and bugs. We’re still here. Now they want us to throw away USB devices we don’t ‘trust.’    If this so-called un-patchable flaw is so dangerous why would the so-called good guys release a proof of concept exploit to the world? I think most so-called security researchers are paranoid schizophrenics with...
The five adults in my immediate family that have iPhones are all business types. None of them appears to have any trouble using the touch screen keyboard. Some people refuse to change just because. They don’t even want to try. A minority of squawkers is making a bunch of noise about physical keyboards as the world moves on. Where have we heard that mantra before? Why the “matte screen” MacBook squawkers who, to this very day, rage on about their glossy screens and how they...
But market share is everything!
 No, I don’t suppose you would.
Do I hear crickets chirping from the Android bleacher seats here on AI?
The fact that Samsung and Microsoft feel they have to attack Apple shows how dominant and powerful Apple really is. Way back in dinosaur days I was in sales (big tickets items involving dealing with large committees). My boss sent me to a number of professional sales seminars and Dale Carnegie courses. In every case it was made perfectly clear that the minute you mention your competitor you have lost. To mention your competitor gives them legitimacy, makes the customer...
 Because both companies do business in Europe. New world order my friend, starting with global economic regulation.
 There was a guy on one of the Usenet groups who was an avid Apple hater. He compiled his ‘data’ that Apple was doomed by going to his local CompUSA store and counting the number of boxes containing Macs on the shelves. The next day he would return and count again. Then he would issue his ‘report’ of zero sales for Apple. This ‘data’ was then extrapolated into utter doom for the company. By the way, he was a big Dell supporter and we all know what happened to Dell.
 Why so hung ho about NFC? Because the other guys have it? Because it’s the world standard for mobile payments (NOT!)? Who says NFC is the cat’s meow? The iHaters, if course, because Apple doesn’t have it. I don’t know if NFC is worth a plug nickel as a technology but I hope Apple isn’t including it just because the techies are enamored with it. 
 Most, if not all, of the major name brands you find at Best Buy are special models made for that demographic. Klipsch does the same thing. You would never find their Reference line in Best Buy but you find a cheaper version that has the Klipsch logo on it.  Same goes for HDTVs from Sharp, Samsung, etc. Check the specs and model numbers and compare with the high end audio/video stores and you immediately see the difference.
